It is a cozy small place, hidden from all the city noise. You just get the feeling that you are at one of your friends places gathered for a drink or a small dish. The food is incredible, we couldn't stop ordering. The menu is simple, but everything there is amazing and the prices are also good. I will come... More

(I was actually there one year ago, Nov 2014...). I arrived into town late one afternoon and after checking into my hostel the staff recommended I try out Kaya Tanya (a few short blocks away) for an evening meal. I travel on a budget but my tummy was also rumbling so I decided to give it a whir, hoping to... More

This is a small restaurant with great food. They prepare it locally and it has the taste of home. It is situated in the old town and if the weather is good, dining outside gives a priceless feeling beside the delicious food. There is a daily changing short menu, because they prepare the meals in each day giving them the... More

This is a tiny place, with a friendly atmosphere. The food is good and the serving is really quick. It is a good place for a quick byte.

Different place to eat, a small place and a cozy atmosphere. Nice for a lunch out. Not a very wide selection of food, but you can always find something to choose.

Had lunch here on a recent trip to Cluj - homely place, though only having high stools to sit on it's not a place to really relax. Tasty and filling food, though the oven roast pork was a little over done in parts - the potatoes were very tasty. Food very inexpensive.

I really like this place for what it offers, a changing menu of simple home cooked meals for a good price. It is good a place located in the center of town, if you just want a quick lunch. Great service.

Nowadays the menu seems a bit repetitive (for a place that presumably rewrites it's chalkboard menu every day, updating it on the go as the fresh stuff is sold out or the chef prepares something new) but it's still small and cozy and the food is ultimately a great value for money. If you're new in town, definitely check it... More

We spent a few hours in the restaurant, sharing dinner ... with a few cheeky flies. Luckily they were resting time to time on the cups with (tap) water. Is difficult to enjoy your meal and fight with flies. Service staff seemed tired and bored. We had to ask targeted questions about the drinks. We had to ask expressly napkins.... More

Description
A Kaja Tanya nevű étterem 2010-ben nyitotta ki először konyháját Kolozsvár szívében és azóta is várja minden olyan kedves vendégét, akik kifejezetten az otthoni ízek szerelmesei. A menü és egyben az étterem koncepciója, arra az ötletre épült, hogy a változatosság van teljes mértékben szem előtt. A konyhában az ételek folyamatosan készülnek, majd ha esetleg nap közben valami elfogyott, akkor azt letörlik a tábláról és egy egészen más finomság kerül teritékre. A belső tér ez év elején lett átépítve, így nagyobb társaságot is befogad, mind emelett bérelhető is különböző eseményekre valamint kiszállitást is vállal és lelkesen támogat művészeti rendezvényeket, koncerteket és kiállításokat is. Nyáron pedig a teraszon élvezheti ki az ember egy frissen készült bodza ital frissitő hatását. Egy másik figyelemre méltó különlegessége a vegetáriánius ételek sokszínüsége, ami a Kaja Tanya szívügye. Ugyan olyan változatos felhozatalt kínálnak hús nélküli ételekben, mint a hagyományos menüben és ez évről évre bővűl, ezen kívű pedig az édesszájuak is örömüket lelhetik egy csodálatos Brownieban, ami ennek a gasztro laboratoriumnak az egyik desszert különlegessége. A Kaja Tanyán nem gyártják az ételeket, és ez érződik minden korty levesben és minden falatban. Törekszenek a mottókukhoz méltóan a: baráti ízekre. Nincsenek cukros szénsavas üditők, de vannak helyben készült italok: bodza, narancs, murok vagy finom szörpök. A Kaja Tanya mindenkinek a barátja, aki a családjával, barátjával vagy a kutyájával akar minőségi időt eltölteni, miközben a lelkét is kényezteti pár finom falattal. És még valami amiben a Kaja Tanya páratlan: mindig meglep valamivel! ____________________________________________________________________________ Restaurantul cu numele Kaja Tanya pentru prima data în anul 2010 şi-a deschis porţile publicului în centrul oraşului Cluj-Napoca, şi de atunci în fiecare zi îşi întâmpină cu braţele deschise toţi acei gurmanţi care iubesc mâncărurile gătite ca şi la mama acasă. Conceptul meniului şi al restaurantului se bazează pe mâncărurile variate, pentru toate gusturile. În bucătărie se găteşte constant, însă în cazul în care vre-un fel de mâncare se termină, acesta este şters de pe tablă şi este adaugată o nouă mâncare gustoasă. Spaţiul din interior a fost reconstruit la începutul anului, acum putând să găzduiască şi grupuri de oameni mai mari. Locaţia se poate rezerva pentru diferite evenimente, preia comenzi de catering şi susţine evenimentele artistice, koncertele, expoziţile. Pe timpul veri se poate savura pe terasă o băutură răcoritoare de soc proaspăt pregătită. O altă specialitate care este demnă de atenţie este varietatea mancărurilor vegetariene, care sunt gătite cu mare atenţie de către bucătarii din Kaja Tanya. Varietatea mâncarurilor fără carne este la fel de mare ca şi în cel al meniului tradiţional, şi acestea cresc ca număr de la an la an. Pe lângă asta şi iubitorii de deserturi se pot bucura de gustoasele Brownie-uri, fiind unul dintre specialităţile acestui laborator gastronomic. La Kaja Tanya nu se fabrică mâncărurile, şi acest aspect se poate simţi în fiecare lingură de ciurbă, în fiecare îmbucătură. Se încearcă de a respecta motto-ul restaurantului: gusturi prietenoase. Nu se poate găsi bauturi carbogazoase, însă se poate savura băuturi preparate la faţa locului: de soc, de portocale, de morcovi sau siropuri gustoase. Kaja Tanya este prietenul tuturor celor care doresc să petreacă timp de calitate alături de familie, prieteni sau căţel în timp ce îşi răsfată sufletul cu câteva bucate delicioase. Prin încă un aspect Kaja Tanya încearcă să fie unic: întodeauna te surprinde cu ceva nou!
